  • Optimize security to shorten waits, airline execs say
    Airline executives at an aviation forum in the United Arab Emirates said the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program is the kind of forward thinking the industry needs to provide individual-based screening without increasing wait times. "We cannot continue to build and build and build to provide space for the existing systems and queues," said Tony Tyler, CEO of the International Air Transport Association.

  • Add-on fees in the travel industry continue to spread
    Hotels, cruise lines and car-rental companies are increasingly exploring the potential revenue gains from unbundled service fees, this feature says. In the hotel industry, paid in-room Internet services are gaining wider acceptance. "I don’t foresee it changing. I think that if, in the marketplace, if the hotel thinks the customer will pay for it, they will continue to do it," said Joe McInerney, president and CEO of AH&LA.

  • Airspace changes at Wash. state airport upset pilots
    Procedural changes planned by the Federal Aviation Administration at Pearson Field Airport in Vancouver, Wash., have upset local pilots. The proposed procedures at the non-towered airfield near Portland International Airport in Oregon call for the creation of a box of airspace six miles long and one mile wide restricted to one airplane at a time. "The Pearson box, while a solution to some of the issues in the airspace, was — and is — a bad idea. Our short-term focus was to prevent its implementation. We have been successful in getting at least a 30-day delay," said Paul Speer, chairman of the Pearson Field Aviation Advisory Committee. "Procedures associated with the box limit use of the airspace to either a PDX aircraft or a VUO aircraft, but not both at the same time."
